The Governor Vetoes Resolution To Investigate DOCL



ROCKFORD HILLS (WZ) – Early on the 31st of July of the Legislature passed the Business Commission Resolution with a 3-1-1 vote in favor of the Resolution, with Representative Avery voting against and Representative Callow abstaining from the vote.

However the executives view of the constitution is seemingly more widely accepted

If the veto stands, the legislature has the power to override a veto with a unanimous 5/5 vote in favor of overturning the veto.
